Hiya Folks

Was hoping someone could help me with this. I have read through previous questions on here relating to the same issue but I've been unable to sort this myself :(

Basically the majority of the links I click via a google search re-direct me to random websites, for some reason my 'Bit Defender' AV has not detected this.

I've run the Bit Defender scan and I've also scanned using Malwarebytes but to no avail. I read on a previous post that If these fail you should scan with Combofix, I did just that but the problem persits. The Combofix report is below, any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance

You should also try scanning your computer with superantispyware and spybot. Download links Both are free and does a great job at detecting and removing spyware.
